THE FULL STORY


For over 30 years we’ve pushed the boundaries in the printing industry, giving us the edge when it comes to maintenance, lubrication and rust protection. The result is a range of cutting edge products for both specialist and multipurpose use that have been proven to consistently outperform the competition.

HOW IT ALL BEGAN

1981

about-1981

Our parent company, Marott Graphic Services (MGS) was established in 1981 to provide high performance pressroom chemicals for the global printing industry.
The harsh environmental conditions found on modern presses, where nickel and steel are constantly in contact with moisture and elevated temperatures, meant that corrosion was a significant and costly problem.

PRINT TECHNOLOGY ADVANCED RAPIDLY THROUGHOUT THE 1980’S AND 1990’S. DURING THAT TIME MAROTT GRAPHIC SERVICES WAS AT THE FOREFRONT OF DEVELOPING CUTTING EDGE PRINT ADDITIVES FOR CORROSION PROTECTION.

2000 – Press protection was launched

Our XCP™ Press Protection range was launched during the early 2000’s and quickly became successful globally, receiving endorsements from leading equipment manufacturers such as Manroland and Heidelberg.

The next step

about-2010-products

2010 – XCP™ PROFESSIONAL IS BORN

In 2010, we created the XCP Professional line of products to provide the highest standards in maintenance, lubrication and rust protection.

We knew our products could deal with the excessive heat, humidity and friction within the highly-demanding world of printing presses, so we were confident they would stand up equally well to tackling a wide range of other jobs, for the professional or enthusiast, from multi-million pound engineering projects to squeaky door hinges.

The range was initially targeted towards trade users, and soon attracted a following in a diverse range of sectors, from theme park maintenance to offshore rigs and car workshops.

2012

2012 was a big year for us – the UK’s Automobile Association (The AA) selected XCP™ ONE™ as their preferred multipurpose spray to help them keep their 15 million members moving.

It was also the year we launched our XCP Industrial Fluids range – quickly gaining customer acceptance with our comprehensive product range and collaborative approach to building bespoke products to meet customer requirements.

2014 – THE GREEN REVOLUTION

One of the major challenges of our time is to help reduce society’s dependency on the world’s finite natural resources. As much as people want to use environmentally friendly products, many believe that they simply don’t work as well as ‘traditional’ products. They are considered an “Eco-Compromise”. We invested years of research and development to prove that this does not need to be the case.

The result was XCP™ GREEN ONE™. It’s made with more than 99% bio-based, renewable and sustainable ingredients. And just as importantly, it significantly beats the competition on performance – meaning no compromise when it comes to protecting the environment!
